MP of the week: Anthony Johnson

This week’s featured missing person is Anthony Amadeo Johnson, a 52-year-old man who disappeared on August 29, 2010 from his home in Fort Myers Beach, Florida. He’s got some disabilities, including trouble walking and memory lapses, and is supposed to take a lot of medications which he doesn’t have.

There isn’t much about his disappearance, but I wonder if he might be homeless, perhaps not knowing who he is or how to get home. He’s got a distinctive appearance, in that his body is just about covered in tattoos.

If still alive, Johnson would be 61 today.

Stay safe everyone. Stay home if you can, and WASH YOUR HANDS.

    I’ve listened to a few of Ed Dentzel’s Unfound podcasts – about 4, I believe, at random – and have already heard one that gives indication he was speaking with someone who is actually guilty of involvement. It’s almost other-worldly to realize that the guest who is straining all believability to its breaking point, is most likely doing that to try to hide what really happened.

    My interest took me to youtube and, without naming the case, it turns out to be one of the few that Unfound has opened for comment on its channel. (I wish Unfound would allow comment on all material – but I suppose Ed has his reasons.). Lo and behold, very serious accusations were being made there – to convincingly counter the guest’s claims and to offer believability. In effect, the input took something that’d otherwise be a real mind-boggler, and put it in its place.

    It makes me wonder how many of these cases are floating around. Being that Unfound may be one of the few shows (or perhaps the only one) to do interviews with friends/family, there must more on that podcast.

      The Vanished also does interviews with friends and family, though not with suspects as far as I know.

        Thank you, Meaghan. I’ll check that out.

        The guest I mentioned isn’t officially a suspect in the eyes of LE. Pretty sure that’s true, since the disappearance was several years ago.

        But it was also likely the person’s first interview in this type of format. And probably the first interview since the time following the disappearance.

        The cops are pretty careful about who they name as suspects. Suspects have certain rights that non-suspects don’t necessarily have.

      Are you talking about Anthony?

      Doc are you speaking about Anthony?

      Was this person talking about Tony? I’m Tony’s wife and I am still searching

    In my opinion, the guest knows what happened to the person – and realistically it was murder.

    Sadly, though, I don’t know if much effort went into this case by anyone. But maybe I’m wrong.

    One thing for sure, it would be interesting to know the guest’s incentive or motive to do the show, considering there’d been so much resistance by that person (the guest) to ever publicize this matter. Even after Dentzel offered to help get that done, albeit to an unenthusiastic response from the guest: I notice there’s still very little information about it, few-to-no enteries on sites, etc.

      You never did answer me. Are you speaking of Anthony in this post? I just need to now. If someone killed him I want them in some Florida prison forever.

    Doc, I recently came across Unfound. It has some interesting stuff on it. I read about a young man missing from a horse ranch in Georgia. His case is on Chsrley. They actually have a conversation with the daughter of the now deceased owner of the property where he was last seen.

    I am Anthony’s wife. Ellen Tallabas-Johnson. I am still looking and hoping.
